Mercedes freely interpreted – the GLK

Can you harmonise a Mercedes with inharmonious wishes ? We can. With corners and edges, with sophisticated engineering and with the right ideas. Cue the GLK, a completely novel type of Mercedes. In it, two personalities merge to create a vehicle concept which is every bit as distinctive as it is innovative : atypical in form, typically superior in substance. For even though this unmistakable o - roader interprets the Mercedes idea in most independent fashion, the GLK embodies, above all, high standards of agility, safety and comfort. As well as the courage to explore new territory – even before it hits the road.


The GLK- Class


Design

11

You can always tell strong personalities by their rough edges

The design of the GLK breaks new ground, featuring striking lines that are a demonstration of how it dares to be dierent. The angular design idiom clearly sets it apart from the crowd and gives the GLK a beefy, muscular appearance, which is all the more remarkable given its relatively compact exterior dimensions.


Design

13

Impressively expressive

Whatever angle it is viewed from, the styling of the GLK sends out a clear message. Distinctive feature lines dominate the door areas between the boldly contoured wheel arches. From the powerful front section to the steep rear, its succinct, angular forms give the GLK a refreshingly self - assured presence.


14

Design

Get a new perspective on things

No matter where you take your GLK, you’re bound to leave a lasting impression. Plus, you will see things in a dierent light yourself too. If you wish, you can give the pleasant sense of spaciousness that comes as standard an even lighter, airier feel by opting for the electric panoramic sliding sunroof. Its expansive transparent surface transforms the entire interior of the GLK into a mobile sundeck.


Comfort | Cockpit

17

The interior’s in great shape, too

You care about good looks and outstanding reliability in every situation ? You want versatility – sufficient manoeuvrability for tackling the urban jungle but also the right credentials for staying in total control when you venture off - road ? Then take a seat in the GLK. You will find that the interior picks up the exterior design idiom : expressive lines and a contemporary approach which emphasises the interplay of different surfaces ensure that the distinctive character of the GLK is clearly reflected by the interior, too. A particularly large trim panel on the dashboard and the black upper section of the latter emphasise the width of the interior while also creating an intriguing contrast effect. Down to the smallest detail, the interior is characterised by outstanding workmanship and materials whose high - quality look and feel meet the most exacting standards. At the same time, the perfect ergonomics make driving the GLK an almost intuitive experience.


Comfort | Interior

19

Discover the great indoors

The rear seats have split - folding backrests while the folding centre armrest has an integral stowage facility and two cup holders

Driving the GLK is all about going your own way. It is now possible to combine the comfort, design and agility of a Mercedes - Benz off - roader with the compact exterior dimensions of a passenger car. And the great thing about it is that the interior belies the vehicle’s compact size. In fact, it offers all the passengers a remarkable sense of spaciousness which makes the elevated seating position and excellent all - round visibility all the more enjoyable. The generous legroom and the high degree of stress - relieving comfort provided by the seats contribute to this, as does the optional panoramic sliding sunroof. The experience can be enhanced still further with the particularly stylish leather appointments which are available as an optional extra. As you can see, the GLK is able to meet your every wish. Indeed, this exceptional vehicle goes even further – it sets out to inspire you time and time again.


20

Comfort | Flexibility

Its space concept gives off a very clear message : do whatever you please

Anyone with an active lifestyle has high expectations of their car. Maybe it’s for carrying sports equipment or just dealing with all of those challenges, both large and small, that day - to - day life holds in store – if you are looking for a vehicle that can cope with all of this and more besides, without taking up the space of a small delivery van, then you need look no further. Thanks to an intelligent space concept and a host of sound ideas for arranging the interior, the GLK boasts the flexibility and practicality required to make it an ideal companion in all situations. The rear bench seat with its rear armrest and two cup holders features a 1 / 3 : 2 / 3 split - folding design, offering you plenty of scope for variation. Meanwhile, the EASY - PACK load compartment cover that is available as an option at no extra charge shields your cargo from the sun’s rays and prying eyes.


22

Agility | AGILITY CONTROL

Give boredom the cold shoulder

The GLK delivers an extra portion of driving pleasure as standard, courtesy of the AGILITY CONTROL suspension with selective damping system. This system automatically adjusts the suspension set - up to match the current road conditions as requirements dictate. Together with the AGILITY CONTROL steering that is perfectly in tune with the suspension system and the AGILITY CONTROL gearshift, it converts the GLK into a genuine all - rounder oering non - stop enjoyment, whether it is driving in the city, powering along open roads or negotiating o - road terrain. Highly sporty - minded drivers also have the option of the exterior sports package including sports suspension, which lowers the ride height by around 20 mm and makes cornering at speed an absolute joy.


24

Agility | 4MATIC all - wheel drive

Now you can take roads or leave them

The off - road prowess of the GLK is by no means superficial. Short overhangs at the front and rear and a generous ground clearance combine with the 4MATIC permanent all - wheel drive to ensure that the compact all - rounder continues to cut a fine figure far away from gravel car parks. This is because 4MATIC always splits the engine’s power and torque between all four wheels in accordance with requirements, both on the road and off it. The resulting boost to traction and directional stability enhances both the vehicle’s agility and handling safety in equal measure.


26

Agility | Off - road engineering package

Now you really can leave the rest behind

With the optional off - road engineering package on board, the GLK even makes light work of more challenging terrain. The simulated underguard helps to reduce damage caused by any grains of sand or small stones which are thrown up. What’s more, the off - road capabilities of the GLK can be honed further still by pushing a single button to trigger carefully programmed alterations of the drive characteristics. The task of conventional differential locks is handled by the Electronic Traction System ( 4ETS ), which has been specially optimised for all - wheel - drive models with 4MATIC. This saves weight without compromising on performance in the slightest. On steep downhill descents, the driver can also count on the support of the Downhill Speed Regulation ( DSR ) function, which keeps the speed constant by regulating the engine and transmission as well as applying the brakes automatically. Even when the going gets tough, maximum traction, directional stability and straightforward handling are second nature to the GLK. Which all means that you can turn heads cruising along boulevards or embark on a journey of discovery far off the beaten track, exactly as you please.


Agility | Off - road performance

Equally at home in the urban jungle and in the great outdoors

A great many SUVs are so called merely because of their adventuresome looks. The GLK does not fall into this category though, rather it is a true off - roader with all the trimmings. Without the sports suspension fitted, it boasts a whole 201 mm of ground clearance. This combines with the short body overhangs to produce a large breakover angle of 19°, as well as an angle of approach of 23° and an angle of departure of 25°. Where surface conditions permit, the GLK can tackle gradients as steep as 70 %. So should you ever decide to leave the tarmac behind you, the GLK will still prove itself to be a most agile and robust travel companion.

Maximum breakover angle of 19°

Ground clearance of up to 201 mm

Angle of approach up to 23° and angle of departure up to 25°

Maximum fording depth 300 mm

Maximum gradient climbing ability up to 70%


Agility | Diesel engines

A powerhouse with a smooth touch

The GLK comes with a thrilling range of engines to suit all tastes. Take the GLK 320 CDI, for example – an economical diesel unit featuring common - rail technology. Fans of extremely fuel - efficient and economical diesel engines would be best advised to wait for the 125 - kW ( 170 - hp ) GLK 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY* model due out in the 2nd quarter of 2009, which offers fuel consumption of just 6.9 litres per 100 km and the 7G - TRONIC transmission. The engine propels the GLK from 0 to 100 km / h in 8.8 seconds, whilst putting a rated torque of 400 Newton metres on tap between 1400 and 2800 rpm. Naturally, both diesel engines come with a particulate filter as standard.

Scaling new heights takes plenty of power

Lively engine performance and long - distance comfort are far from mutually exclusive in the GLK. On the contrary, this is a vehicle that aims to offer the best of both worlds. So it comes as no surprise that the engines under the bonnet of the GLK stand out not just for their responsiveness but for their abundant pulling power too. You are able to choose from two sporty 6 - cylinder petrol units. First, there is the GLK 280 delivering 170 kW ( 231 hp ), a powerful performer with sufficient reserves for sudden bursts of speed. For an even sportier drive you have the GLK 350, which can race from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.7 seconds and musters up a maximum output of 200 kW ( 272 hp ). Whichever engine you opt for, however, all transfer their power to the wheels as standard via the 7G - TRONIC automatic transmission, which has been specially modified for the GLK.

Agility | 7G - TRONIC

7 gears as standard makes you crave for more

All models in the GLK range come equipped with the highly sophisticated 7G - TRONIC automatic transmission as standard, completely doing away with the need to operate a clutch. Thanks to its seven forward gears and the resulting smaller shifts in engine speed, 7G - TRONIC promises extra - smooth gearshifts with no perceptible interruption in power ow. Plus, it can also execute multiple downshifts whenever you wish to pick up speed particularly rapidly. What’s more, the entire transmission has been optimised for the all - wheel - drive system, ensuring that maximum driving pleasure is yours to savour to the full wherever your travels take you.

Safety | Integrated safety concept

It also takes a hard line on safety

Active safety systems – Electronic Stability Program ( ESP  ), including the Electronic Traction System ( 4ETS ) and Brake Assist ( BAS ) – ADAPTIVE BRAKE system – PRE - SAFE  system ( optional ) – Intelligent Light System ( optional )

Passive safety systems

You can enjoy the agility of the GLK all the more thanks to the peace of mind provided by the Mercedes - Benz integrated safety concept. You’ll notice it in the form of features such as the raised seating position and the good all - round visibility which results. It is also responsible for the wide track and the comprehensive range of active and passive occupant protection measures. The following pages provide you with a brief summary of the principal active and passive safety features to be found aboard the GLK.

– Airbags for driver and front passenger, two - stage – Kneebag ( driver ) – Sidebags in the front ( in the rear as an option ) – Windowbags – NECK - PRO head restraints – Belt tensioners and belt force limiters in the front and for the rear outside seats – Passenger safety cell


40

Safety | Active safety

A marvel in theory, marvellously reassuring in practice The GLK detects a hazardous situation before the human brain even has time to react. It then seeks to defuse it by intervening in the brake and engine management systems in an effective manner. Take the ADAPTIVE BRAKE system’s Brake Assist function for example : this detects the start of emergency braking from the force with which the brake pedal is applied, whereupon it instantly makes maximum braking power available. The system incorporates a handy hill - start assist too. Also helping to ensure a very high degree of active safety is the Electronic Stability Program ( ESP  ), including the Electronic Traction System ( 4ETS ) and Brake Assist ( BAS ).

The optional Intelligent Light System means broader and brighter illumination of the opposite roadside


42

Safety | Passive safety

The GLK takes an active approach to passive safety The GLK may have a very active nature, but by no means has it forsaken the topic of passive safety. If needs be depending on the type of impact, two - stage front airbags for the driver and front passenger are deployed to protect you, together with a kneebag for the driver, windowbags and front sidebags. The high - strength passenger safety cell, meanwhile, combines with the energy - absorbing front - end and rear - end structures to provide you with all - round impact protection. The comprehensive safety package is rounded o by the belt tensioners and belt force limiters for the front seats and outer rear seats, as well as the NECK - PRO head restraints.
